Preparing for our new addition!


While some people may have been using the long weekend to relax Colin and myself have been busy moving furniture (well Colin has) and putting furniture together for our first baby which is due in September! We have a two bedroom house, one of which was used for our crafting/hobby room, which we have now had to give up and change into our bedroom. Poor Colin is exhausted from moving alot of things around, it is quite frustrating not being able to help him, but he would tell me off if I did. Colin's Mum, Anita, was kind enough to spoil us with all the big items for the nursery so we were busting to set it all up, plus my nesting instinct is setting in and I want to get things organised. I am quite happy now, just need to sort out where were are going to store all of our crafting goodies! But we will get there.

Black and White

With the Just Add Ink team setting a colour challenge of black and white, I decided that they would be ideal colours for a birthday card for a friend. Having no real idea what I was going to do, I sat down with a piece of white card and a piece of black card and came with with a card rather quickly. I utilised one of the Big Shot embossing folders and the torn frame technique that my upline Sharnee demonstrated at the Stampin' Up Convention in May. I am quite happy with the end product. Some time it is good to go back to basics!
